Re: Anett Kontaveit

Trofeo Bonfiglio was explainable by lack of practicing due to the exams as she mentioned herself. Then it looked like she really got it going in RG and was ready for some good runs in Roehampton and Wimbledon. But now after this I really don't know what to expect anymore.

Well she almost lost first round in RG, and clay is her preferred surface, and sanders is left handed at not that bad a player (her match vs Khromacheva is in the junior video thread). I think if Anett gets another kind draw a QF or SF is not out of the question with perhaps some better doubles results. I would like her to be top 10 without needing to play Orange Bowl, so if she can do well in European Championships (if she plays, entries come out tonight) and US Open + Canada Open along with Wimbledon, I think that's doable. In the long run though, these results don't matter that much

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

BTW, here is a photo of Anett in Roehampton. She looks like a ghost in white. If only it wasn't Wimbledon season, and she could wear a more appropriate colour that made her look more tanned. Even last years was better. Look:



She obviously looks better in the darker colours

BTW, she still hasn't entered any challengers. This weeks list came out and she wasn't on any. I am hoping she is on European Championships list at least, so she can get some matchplay

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Plays on Saturday. We never know what to expect from her, but hopefully she manages to win. GL

I don't think its too worrying
Haddad Maia hasn't really done anything stellar in the past
Anett has an awkward section so if she gets past Haddad Maia and Vickery, I pick her for the Semis or even the Finals

BTW, her match may be streamed

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett won 4-6 6-3 6-1
She only won 3 points on return in the first but returned and in general played really well from 1-1 in the second set
She served quite well throughout the whole match and except for the second set choke (she won it on her 9th set point ) which included leading 0-40 at 5-2, she basically won 11 games in a row with one or two detours
A decent start

Next she has Elise Mertens from Belgium who defeated Varvara Flink 6-4 6-3
I would put Anett as the favourite to meet Sachia Vickery in the last 16, where I would like her to get US Open revenge

The doubles draw hasn't been released yet but I expect her to be in the top 4 seeds with Indy de Vroome

Mertens main results have been a Runner Up at the Mediterranee Avenir G1 (losing to Indy de Vroome) and winning the SFAX G2 in Tunisia

No real problems for Anett IMO as Mertens lost to Haddad Maia 6-2 6-3 last week and 6-3 6-2 to Varvara Flink the week before, even though she beat Flink this week

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Much tougher than expected. Bia is basically a claycourter. She lost to Zarazua on grass two weeks ago I've expected Anett to win it in two routine sets.
Mertens should be easy as well, but who knows...

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Phew, was worried after the first set but I knew she still can win this match. Hopefully she gets more wins

BTW, this result reminded me something from this year's AO

IKR!!!! That was so funny
Anett is playing doubles with Indy de Vroome
I love Indy so this is one of my favourite combos
Also Dutch/Estonian and Indy is good on grass despite her loss to Belinda last week
This is their draw
(1)Bouchard/Townsend (CAN/USA) v Bosio/Vega (ARG/ARG)
Sherif/Sutjiadi (EGY/INA) v Lushkova/Uberalova (UKR/SVK)
Csoregi/Ostapenko (ROU/LAT) v (wc)Askew/Dunne (GBR/GBR)
(6)Danilina/Haddad Maia (KAZ/BRA) v Haas/Sharipova (AUT/UZB)

(4)Abanda/Vickery (CAN/USA) v Lekaj/Sanders (CRO/AUS)
Flink/Lottner (RUS/GER) v (wc)Rush/Sellyn (GBR/GBR)
Lemmens/Mertens (BEL/BEL) v Kasatkina/Komardina (RUS/RUS)
(8)Gonzalez/Scholl (PAR/USA) v Brady/McPhillips (USA/USA)

(7)Bencic/Konjuh (SUI/CRO) v (wc)Asghar/Silva (GBR/GBR)
Fanning/Korashvili (NZL/UKR) v Sasnovich/Vekic (BLR/CRO)
Kiick/Zhao (USA/CAN) v Routliffe/Salnikova (CAN/RUS)
(3)Deheza/Kulichkova (BOL/RUS) v Harrison/Makarova (USA/USA)

(5)De Vroome/Kontaveit (NED/EST) v Allgurin/Peterson (SWE/SWE)
Krejcikova/Rosca (CZE/ROU) v Maciejewska/Rosatello (POL/ITA)
(wc)Dart/Horn (GBR/GBR) v Doroshina/Siniakova (RUS/CZE)
(2)Gavrilova/Svitolina (RUS/UKR) v Pigossi/Zacarias (BRA/MEX)


No problems IMO until Gavrilova/Svitolina but I sense that they won't be a good combo for some reason

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex
